on gun control and it happens to be a democrat by the name of harry reid. >> right, a democrat by the name of harry reid, who has opposed some of the very kind of things that president obama is calling for a vote on this time. so, yeah, i think the president should nudge people in his own party to do the things that he wants them to do. we haven't seen him do it on gun control, certainly didn't see him do it on immigration and never did it on senate budge proposal. >> megyn: she calls it an empty gesture untied to political reality. if you watched that moment, he seemed to be implying that there were lawmakers there and one would assume it was lawmakers on the opposite aisle from the president who are going to stop gabby giffords and other victims of gun violence from getting a vote on this legislation. that's not the reality right now in the u.s. congress. >> you're right and look, anytime the president speaks in a venue like this, he's got several audiences and clearly what he's saying is not for the members of congress in front of him. as you point out. harry reid could have
." do you remember when the top democrat in the senate, harry reid, declared just a few weeks ago the democrats would not change the rules in the senate? remember that? wouldn't change the rules to stop senate republicans from abusing the process there. harry reid decided he would just instead make a handshake deal with the republicans' top senator, mitch mcconnell. he said he was satisfied with the republicans just agreeing to be more reasonable on issues like this. remember? they wouldn't change the filibuster rules. they would just agree as gentlemen that the republicans would curtail the excesses of filibustering everything and effectively ruling from the minority. democrats decided to not change the rules on the filibuster and just make that agreement with the republicans instead. they said, you know, at a minimum this will at least improve the confirmation process for the administration's nominees. how is that working out now? just a couple of weeks later. how's that gentleman's agreement going? now that we've just had a filibuster of a cabinet nominee for the first time in
been humiliated by his own people with the plan "b" debacle. and he tells harry reid to go [ bleep ] himself. >> harry reid looks up and he says, what? excuse me? and boehner says it again. >> hey, listen. senator reid and i are close friends. we've got to work together. but just like any close friends, sometimes you just need to clear the air. and we did. >> i can't imagine that happening. >> oh, gee. oh, that's never happened on capitol hill before, has it, michael? >> i was talking about between us. that's okay. >> that would never happen. so michael, take us behind the scenes. here i suspect pass is going to be prologged several times in the future. >> well, exactly right. when i look forward to the state of the union address tomorrow night, i'm looking forward to seeing john boehner and joe biden sitting behind barack obama, especially after what i learned in the last six months digging into the fiscal cliff story and beyond. it's just fascinating, you guys. the personalities and the clash in politics that surround it. we got pretty deeply inside of it and a very good intervie
republicans passed so many things that just never see the light of day. and harry reid's senate. but the way things used to work, you used to pass things in the house, and then the senate would pass things. and then when harold and i at least were in washington in the '90s, then you go to conference committee, and they battle it out. that doesn't happen if harry reid doesn't pass things in the senate. he is the president's pocket veto. >> the step you're missing in that is -- and kevin mccarthy's interview proves that denial is not simply a river in egypt -- there's no conference committee. >> can i -- hold on. hold on. >> that's a good one. that was so fancy. >> is not just a river in egypt. >> that's what he does now. >> that's something brad pitt would say in one of those chanel ads. >> let's call brad. >> standing against the wall wearing nothing. >> he's wearing the sweater. >> go like this. >> you can't get away with saying things like that on this show. >> i want to hear his vision. >> why? more "morning joe." >> i know you're way above the cliche. i'm sorry. >> stupid cliche. >> what
congressional leaders from both houses and both parties. so that's mitch mcconnell, harry reid, nancy pelosi and john boehner. in response i think to the number of democrats and the first lady bringing victims of gun violence with them as guests to the state of the union this year, to highlight that issue, one republican member of congress this year has decided to do his part to advance the serious consideration of gun violence and lawful gun ownership in america by inviting as his guest for the state of the union this gentleman. >> hey obama, you might want to suck on one of these, you punk! obama, he's a piece of [ bleep ] and i told him to suck on my machine gun. let's hear it for him. i said hey, humor me. you might want to ride one of these into the sunset, you worthless [ bleep ]. >> mr. ted nugent is a musician. i believe he is still mostly known for "cat scratch fever", but i could be wrong. he was investigated by the secret service last year after telling an nra convention in april of 2012, quote, if barack obama is elected, i'll either be dead or in jail this time next year." texas
sticky is once the committee sends it to the full senate and harry reid just a couple of minutes ago said he'd like to take the vote this week but the republican leader says it is possible there could be some delays to give opportunity for more information. sort of a slow walking. it's not a filibuster threat just yet. it's unclear how it will go. they don't want to show their hand but some of the resistance of republicans is they don't feel that chuck hagel explained enough about the financial arrangements since he left the senate, concerns about his views, concerns about the performance at his nomination hearing where he had some, you know, rough back and forth that we all watched. so the white house has told us that they believe the numbers are there for hagel to get the job at the pentagon. but there are a couple of steps that need to go forward, a critical one this afternoon likely to pass the committee. the rest of the story on hagel unfolding in a few days but we don't know what republicans will do. >> all right. kelly, thank you very much. we'll bring the audience the update as so
in the senate. senate majority leader harry reid filed for cloture today so the vote will not take place until friday. that's when the 60-vote fle threshold will have to be cleared for a simple majority vote to take place on whether former senator chuck hagel becomes the next secretary of defense. >> julian, mr. cruz says he wasn't questioning hagel's patriotism. but let me read what he said when he started demanding financial information for the past five years rather than the standard two. and i'm quoting mr. cruz. it may be that he spoke at radical or extreme groups or anti-israel groups and accepted financial compensation. we don't know. in other words, have you now or have you ever been a communist, senator hagel? isn't that what cruz is asking? >> yeah. we see a lot of this kind of cheap shots by the chicken hawks in the republican party going after a man who -- a decorated veteran from the vietnam war. >> but these are smears, julian. this isn't a cheap shot. this is implying by a question that the man has corruptly received money from nations that this nation believes to be antagonisti
hagel, here is what harry reid said, the majority out of leader in the senate, what about this who filibuster process. >> i guess to be able to run for senate as a republican most place of the country, you need to have a resume that says i helped bill filibuster one of the president's nominees. >> what about it? >> first, i have to respectfully disagree with the lieutenant governor because he left out a couple of key facts. key fact number one, the sequester was created by the obama administration. so people are frustrated because you have a set of politicians on both sides unwilling to deal with something they created because it was a way for them to kick the can down the road. secondly, with regard to the hagel nomination, unfortunately, chuck hagel is dealing with his own poor performance as a nominee now. all the way back to your original question. there are many people in the democratic party who don't agree either there are many people in the democratic party who are in disagreement right now on what too do about gun control legislation. on the issue of immigration specifical
house and harry reid in the senate have look at this issue of something that's going to be almost impossible. i don't know harry reid can get an assault weapons ban. i don't know there is enough in his conference to get it over the floor. everybody involved in this sees a potentially defining moments for 2014 so where you can say if you have these votes, this guy voted against it or his party voted against it. >> your point, at least get them on the record. right? i want to ask you related, by the way, your calls welcome here on the stayed of the union, which parts you thought were particularly strong what struck you of where he scored or maybe what he failed to mention. violence against women act not to get lost. we talked about it passed the senate overwhelming vote. >> every woman in the senate voted for it. every republican woman in the senate voted for it. >> bill: 22 republicans in the senate joined democrats to vote for that bill. now, will it get a vote in the house? >> it has to get a vote in the house. the republicans are trying to remak
of pressure not only directed at republicans but the number of democrats. by harry reid who i think will rather not bring up a vote on the assault weapons ban. the president was able to move the needle and say look, you're going to vote against something that's fine. but at least be on the record. tell the american people why you have a straight up-or-down vote. i do think the chances of gun control are much better. they don't have to require -- to have a vote in the senate. if they can get a straight up or down bill, assault weapon ban passage, john boehner suggested he may not approve some of the proposals to the floor unless they have majority support. assault weapons ban won't have majority ban. if people support gun control can get the up-or-down vote, they may find some success. that's where it is smart for the president last night. we all talked about the merits of gun control and what not. the process needs to allow the american people to keep members of congress on record on this issue. >> stephanie: thank you for calling me from the train bathroom to have this incredible c

piece of legislation? >> i think that's undecided at this point. harry reid is a big gun enthusiast and what that office is saying right now whatever coming out of the judiciary committee, they are looking at an assault-weapons ban, high-capacity magazines and universal background checks will get a vote. there will be a vote on some of these measures. there will be amendments avow lowed. as for the president, he called for a vote and it looks like he'll get them. >> separate votes but -- >> he'll get votes. >> we'll see what he can achieve on these sensitive issues. jim acosta, thanks very much. >>> president obama hit the road today. >>> also, another day on a hot ship overflowing with raw sewage. is the end now in sight?
